Michelle,
Thank you so much for all this GREAT information. I'm not really sure that the convict James Summers who married Margaret B is the same James that fathered the son James who married Jane Cullen though. I'll need to look more closely at the Glen Innes property references as Inverell has always been the main place of abode I'm told. My hesitation is that family stories have always been that James was a 'remittance man' and while he could have been a wealthy convict, I don't know whether that happened or not during the 1800's. There is supposed to be a connection to the Earl of Reigate and Eastnor Castle in England, so I'm continually confused!!!!

LOTS to look at - thanks so much starting me off!!!
